We are pleased to announce the Call-for-Papers for the Tenth International
Conference on New Directions in the Humanities. The conference and its
companion journal provide vibrant, intellectually stimulating spaces for
scholars from all geographic and disciplinary areas to learn, converse, and
create. The aim is to generate new knowledge about the nature of the
humanities, building strongly on the past traditions of the humanities while
setting a renewed agenda for the future.

Plenary speakers, who will address our special theme 'Looking Forward:
Humanities for the Future', include:

* Diana Brydon - Canada Research Chair in Globalization and Cultural
Studies; Director of the Research Centre for Globalization and Cultural

Montreal, Montreal, Canada

of Western Ontario (Western University), London, Canada

* Stefan Sinclair, Digital Humanities, McGill University, Montreal, Canada

The Humanities Conference is held annually in different locations around the
world. Over the past nine years, the Humanities Conference has established a
reputation as a focal point for new ideas and new practices in humanities
research and teaching. The conference was held at the Universidad de
Granada, Spain in 2011; at the University of California, Los Angeles, USA in
2010; in Beijing, China in 2009; at the Fatih University, Istanbul, Turkey
in 2008; at the American University of Paris in 2007; at the University of
Carthage in Tunis in 2006; at Cambridge University in the UK in 2005; at the
Monash University Centre in Prato, Italy in 2004; and at the University of
the Aegean in Rhodes, Greece in 2003.

In addition to plenary speakers, the conference will also include numerous
paper, workshop and colloquium presentations by practitioners, teachers and
researchers. We invite you to respond to the conference Call-for-Papers.
